While wishing a happy new year around me, people helped me realised how many good things happened to me this year. Funny enough, while listing my goals for 2019, I found the matching list for 2018 and here is what really happened.
We often talk about scalability of iOS app but not much about the project itself or the team. How to prepare your project to move from 2 developers to 6? How about 10 or 20 more? In that research, I’ve listed different tools to prepare your team and project to scale.
For the past months, I keep going further in RxSwift usage. I really like the idea of forwarding events through different layers but the user interface stays sometimes a challenge. Today, I’ll describe how to use RxDataSources to keep things as easy as possible.
Even if I usually stay focus on the customer facing side of mobile development, I like the idea of writing backend api with all the security that Swift includes. Starting small, why not using Swift Server for our UI Tests to mock content and be at the closest of the real app.
I love developing new iOS apps and create new products. However, regardless of the project, it often need a team to mix the required skills: design, coding, marketing. Although, this less and less true, so let’s see how to bootstrap your iOS app.
Not that long ago, I wrote how to pair RxSwift with MVVM architecture in an iOS project. Even if I refactored my code to be reactive, I omitted to mention the unit tests. Today I’ll show step by step how to use RxTest to unit test your code.
For years now, the whole iOS community has written content about the best way to improve or replace the Apple MVC we all started with, myself included. MVC, MVVM, MVP, VIPER? Regardless the type of snake you have chosen, it’s time to reflect on that journey.
After introducing how to implement Coordinator pattern with an MVVM structure, it feels natural for me to go further and cover some of the blank spots of Coordinator and how to fix along the way.
Couple weeks ago, I heard somebody talking about A/B testing in iOS and how “mobile native A/B testing is hard to implement”. It didn’t sound right to me. So I build a tiny framework for that in Swift. Here is Reversi.
I was recently searching for onboarding journey in iOS, that succession of screens displayed at the first launch of a freshly installed mobile app. But regardless how beautiful the design can be, why so many people are tempted to skip it. I listed things to consider while creating an onboarding journey for your iOS app.
After some times creating different iOS apps following an MVVM pattern, I’m often not sure how to implement the navigation. If the View handles the rendering and user’s interactions and the ViewModel the service or business logic, where does the navigation sit? That’s where Coordinator pattern takes place.
